Hands-On Role That Combines Office Activities and Field Work
Lewellyn Technology has an immediate opening for an Electrical Engineer/Field Technician at our Indianapolis headquarters. Established in 1993, our organization has developed from an electrical safety training company to one with in-house electrical engineers and a national network of field technicians and safety consultants. We help companies protect their most important assets: their employees, their facilities, and their financial interests.
Lewellyn is proud to be recognized as one of America’s fastest-growing companies by Inc 5000!
Our areas of specialization include:
- Arc flash assessments, creation of lockout/tagout processes, infrared thermography, and preventive maintenance
- Dust hazards analysis (DHA), dust testing, design/engineering optimization and mitigation
- Onsite and online electrical and combustible dust safety training
- Safety program development, electrical safety audits and inspections, and more
The position will be primarily located in Indianapolis, IN. Some field work/travel for this position may be required as needed.
When working in the field at our client locations, you’ll collect electrical data to use in engineering power system studies that will be performed back in the office. This is a rare opportunity to not only use your engineering skills, but also to participate hands-on at clients in collecting data needed to create engineering reports. If the thought of being behind a desk full-time doesn’t appeal to you, you’ll be interested to know that this position will travel approximately 50% of the time (around 120 days a year) nationwide. Travel will be by air or rental car depending on the client location, so you will need to be able to withstand the rigors of travel (hauling your luggage, running through airports to make a tight connection, driving for several hours, dealing with cranky airline employees, etc).
When in the Indianapolis office, you will perform electrical engineering responsibilities such as:
- Inputting electrical data into SKM software
- Performing short circuit, arc flash, and coordination studies
- Obtaining information from utilities that supply electricity to our clients, and related duties
The best candidates will have experience working as an electrical engineer with power engineering experience being optimal. SKM software experience and the ability to read one-line diagrams are preferred. A bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering or electrical engineering technology is preferred with coursework in “power engineering and systems studies” the next best thing to experience. Being able to communicate clearly both verbally and in writing is important. Because you would be representing Lewellyn at client locations, it’s important to have a professional yet friendly demeanor; “professional” is about your attitude and grooming in this case- not about wearing a suit- just to be clear! You would be provided with Lewellyn gear to wear at client locations, and our office allows for comfortable and casual attire when you’re working there.
Solid customer service skills are critical as is a teamwork mindset. Strong computer skills are required for the engineering portion of this position. This job requires the lifting of rather heavy front covers from electrical units in order to do a visual inspection, so being able to lift up to 50 pounds is important. Good eyesight and the ability to climb ladders, be comfortable in high places, reach above your head and below your knees is necessary. An acceptable MVR and valid driver’s license is required and the ability to pass initial and random drug testing is necessary. Authorization to work in the United States is required for consideration.
Lewellyn is a growing company with a friendly yet professional employee group. We are known for the high quality of our work- we’re the best in the electrical safety business!
